COOKING CLASSES IN SAN FRANCISCO

  • ITALIAN COOKING (SOLD OUT)

    January 24, 2020 6:00 PM

    After eleven years, our Italian cooking classes are still always the most requested. I think it’s because Italian food is so ingredient driven and approachable. And of course, it’s delicious! For most of us it’s also familiar and evokes certain food memories from our childhood. But mostly it’s just delicious! We love teaching home cooks how to make incredible pasta and classic sauces from scratch. And let’s face it, Arancini might be the only thing that even comes close to being as good as pizza. So if you can’t get to Sicily this month, you might as well come learn how to make these at home. It’s the next best thing.

  • GO FISH (SOLD OUT)

    February 28, 2020 6:00 PM

    Go Fish is our all fish cooking class. Frankly, the biggest challenge of all for home cooks is getting good quality fish at retail shops. We recommend your local farmers market these days for fresh fish or if you live in SF, Nijiya market in Japan Town is great. This time of year, we are getting amazing tuna loins from Hawaii for the Poke. We have good local mussels but we often opt for mussels from Prince Edward Island (PEI) for their size and taste. Especially for this awesome winter mussel and citrus salad. The real star here is learning how to make an amazing Thai green coconut curry from scratch. We should still be getting beautiful local Black Cod from Bolinas for this dish. We’ll also use local Rockfish and learn how to filet the whole fish.

  • FARM TO TABLE

    March 13, 2020 6:00 PM

    Just the hint of spring time in the Bay Area is enough to get every cook excited. Each week there’s starting to be something new, fresh and interesting at the farmer’s market to help you forget how tired you were of eating Brussels sprouts all winter. This menu touches upon so many flavors, textures and techniques that you are going to love. The first course is a fresh take on the classic and irresistible deviled egg, these will be the new star of your next dinner party. By now we should start hopefully seeing the very first of Zuckerman Farms asparagus if the weather is cooperating, fingers crossed! Our third course will feature Imperial Farms beef, the quality of which will blow your mind. We’ll get the grill fired up for these! And for our sweet finale, a perfect poached pear from Frog Hollow Farms.

  • ITALIAN COOKING

    April 3, 2020 6:00 PM

    This Italian style cooking class that everyone can’t get enough, might be our favorite menu yet for 2020. Starting with our mini ham and cheese sandos cooked in black truffle butter that we make from last years left over black truffle shavings. This is the best comfort food you have ever had! Next up is our Gioia burrata dish that will be composed of whatever is popping off at the farmer’s market that day. We’ll be looking for contrasts in flavors and textures to make this memorable. This year, how about learning how to finally make real polenta and not that crap in a hard log in the grocery store? This creamy polenta will be stirred for a minimum of three hours and will certainly be a revelation. For dessert, the perfect ending is this coffee granita. It will be decaf, we promise you won’t be up all night.

Students say...

"This is a real cooking class - everyone has their own station, it’s conducted in a commercial kitchen in San Francisco and you get real hands on experience and training."

"Wow, what a spectacular experience. I was expecting a high-level overview of what we would be cooking plus some hands-on stuff, but over the course of four hours Jordan imparts such a deep set of cooking skills and knowledge that I feel that I learned more here than I had in the last four years. Jordan's ability to handle a group of total strangers working with sharp knives and boiling pots and pans is awe-inspiring."
